2013 BMW M3 V8 (PURE)
November 11, 2017
Bought this car with 2k on it, apparently it was a BMW NZ executive/show car. Assumed it was a quality built, performance vehicle that would last me for quite a few years
Looks nice, drives ok and it’s quick enough, but the engine regularly makes “pinking” noises that sound disturbingly like bearing disintegration. BMW dealer assures me it’s all fine and “normal operation”, however I’m not so convinced while you’ll have to use your own judgement on that.
Goodness knows what it would cost to fix/replace a trashed BMW M3 V8 engine, which isn’t quite as unknown as you would’ve expected, however it’s a fair bet that it exceeds the value of the car.
Frankly, it’s doing my head in and I’d rather just be shot of the thing, in spite of the fact that it has a manufacturer’s extended warranty to the end of June 2018.
I wouldn’t touch one of these cars again with a barge pole.
